What did you cook to get ready for the game?

That does not happen at soccer games here, Liverpool has the oldest China Town in Europe so its a bit of a tradition for older fans to go there for a scran before the match, we go to the Ma Bo which has been hand making wonton dumpling for soup for 40 yrs, They have a massive cauldron in the window filled with broth and an very old man sitting next to it making the wonton's like a robot.

Younger fans just buy a hot meat and potato pie or pastie as they walk to the ground

Today I have done pizza. First time I have made pizza at home in a couple decades.

Kathleen: Green pepper, onion, black olive, mushroom.
Me: Pepperoni, mushroom, onion, and extra cheese.

I was going to do the grilled pizza thing, but I realized I am low on charcoal and with it being that week, I didn't have time to pick up more.


What game are you watching and what are ya eating?

Shrek is waiting for the Steelers and Patriots tonight.

I'm cleaning out closets and fixing his eats, Mac'n Cheese, salisbury steaks with gravy and potato rolls. Trying to keep walking in front of the screen, too much.

While I don't typically care for pizza, these pizzas were totally yummy! Plus, it followed the sequence of a football game.

Pre-game show: I watched Frank hand-toss the dough. Needless to say, I was totally impressed.

Kick-off: My pizza was carefully planned by me. Veggies were artistically placed as were the mixture of herbs so that I would have a delicate balance with each play (bite.) Once all players were lined up, the pizza-sized spatula kicked my pizza to the oven where it landed squarely on the pizza stone. Clearly a first down!

After a few checks in the oven, the pizza was pulled right at the perfect moment of done-ness. The crust was golden beneath and had the perfect combo of chewy and crispness. Touchdown!

For the two-point conversion, the veggies had been pre-sliced and were perfectly done with the crust.

Frank slapped his pizza together tossing extra pepperoni over his layer of pepperoni. He then added onions and mushrooms. Not liking black olives, he obviously had a flawed starting line-up.

The kick-off was good as his pizza landed on the stone. Baking time was set and not as much peeking in the oven occurred. A coaching oversight, in my humble opinion, as he later said the very center of his pizza was not as evenly crisp as mine. Touchdown without the extra points.

Score: Kathleen 8 Frank 6
